Right......2 facts about Jozza.....
1. Cooking - gah! - HATE it!
2. Baking - LOVE it!
Check out these little beauties that fell into my basket at Asda yesterday....
Silicon cupcake cases! Oh yes! I have coveted similar beauties to these in Lakeland for a while but was loathe to pay the extortionate prices they charge. Imagine my joy when I clocked these in Asda for a mere 2 yes 2 quid for 12! I almost did a little jig in the aisle but managed to stop myself just in time :o) Check out the colours - how fab and funky are they? There were also some pastel shades but I preferred these ones.
Soooooo today me and the girlies just had to bake. Simplest recipe ever and oh so tasty....
6oz SR flour
6oz caster sugar
plus a splash of Madagascan vanilla essence.
Technically this makes 18 cupcakes but chez Jozza we like our cupcakes large so I make 12.
Chuck it all in a bowl and mix with electric hand mixer. There was a time when I used to hand beat all my cakes but my stoopid carpal tunnel hands won't let me any more :o( Stick them in the oven for around 15 mins at gas mark 4.
Embrace the beauty of the cupcake! Look how much they rose!!! Usually with paper cases they sag a little and flow over the sides but not with these cases. No siree! Silicon cases ROCK!!
Icing all gone yet Maddie?
Ok, imagine Churchill the dog saying this...
